5 minutes with Leo the Mime

"I love to do shows in the street and I like entertaining people"

Today, we have an unusual Talent in our interview room, a mime artist by the name of "Leo the Mime".

So tell me a bit about yourself, how did you get in to mime?


I started my career in Brazil at the tender age of 13, joining my brothers' comedy group, Os Irmaos Sombras (or The Shadow Brothers). The Shadow Brothers have performed for 14 years and use a form of mime called Sombra that emerged from Latin America. Sombra, meaning shadow, involves the mime mirroring the movements and characteristics of people. As the mime is often behind the person I behave like a shadow! This type of mimicry attracts a lot of attention and is very amusing!

What would you say you enjoy most about being a street performer?

I love what I do. I love to do shows in the street and I like entertaining people :)

I've heard that you studied with the prestigious Brazilian actor, Northon Nascimento. How did you find studying with him?

I learnt much with my teacher, about acting and I do my best in my performance. With my brothers I learnt about family acts and what I need to do to be an entertainer.

What is your style of mime? (For example; comic, tragic, satyr etc.) Why did you choose this style?

I choose because is different and very funny and this type of mimicry attracts a lot of attention and is very amusing!

I hear you are from Sao Paulo, Brazil. What made you come to England?

I brought my talents to the UK and am based in Manchester, England but I am available to perform my unique style of mime throughout the North-West and the rest of the country.

Where would you like to be in 5 years' time?

I would like to be a respected and famous Mime Artist.

Any last words for the fans?

Never give up your dream :)
